Woman at the Beach – Holli Harmon



Oil, coldwax and collage

Artist Statement

Holli Harmon’s work revolves around human experiences that are connecting points between different cultures and generations set in iconic California imagery. Her paintings and printmaking re-imagine the story of these places, people, and culture.

Her Califia Series shares female figures to unravel the numerous layers of culture that continue to accumulate in California. California was named after the mythical goddess, Califia, who was a regal black warrior queen.
She is said to be “desirous of achieving great things.”
-Las Sergas de Esplandián, written by Garci Rodriguez de Montalvo in the late fifteenth or early sixteenth century.

Process, materials and surfaces are as important as the subjects found in her work. The imagery lives between representation and abstraction as one material leads to another, creating an object that has a life of its own. Some of theses materials include impasto paint, cold wax, collage and thread.
